PENSION BOARD MEETING

Via the Tribune

Police officers protest Daley nephew pension investment deal
Dozens of Chicago police officers jammed a pension fund board meeting this morning to question a deal with a real estate investment firm involving Mayor Richard Daley's nephew.


In the past few months we have had a vote of no confidence for the Superintendent, a huge informational protest march at City Hall, a larger than normal turnout at the last FOP general meeting and now a packed meeting at the pension board. What has been the driving force for all this activism within the rank and file? Mayor Richard M. Daley!
The members of this department have a Superintendent that was brought in for image purposes by a Mayor that holds this department in contempt. The members of this department have been without a contract for nearly two years. The perception of impropriety exist when our grossly under funded pension monies are invested in a firm with ties to the Mayor's nephew.

In recent months, some Chicago police officers have been speaking out against the Daley administration to protest their continued lack of a new contract.


The Tribune writer is just touching the tip of the iceberg. The animosities that most members of this department feel toward the Mayor have been around long before I got on the job and they go deeper than just the lack of a contract.

Where is the FOP/PBPA and the CPD on officer safety?

Deputies wearing gear to protect against swine flu

Sheriff's deputies working on the streets and in the jails are being told to put on protective gear if they fear they've come in contact with someone infected with the swine flu, the Maricopa County Sheriff's Office announced Tuesday.

The sheriff's office will make masks, gloves and other measures available to 750 deputies working the streets and will add extra deputies trained to identify suspected illegal immigrants based on the theory that some of those inmates might have come from areas in Mexico where the infection was rampant, said Lt. Brian Lee, a sheriff's spokesman.

Sheriff Joe Arpaio also took the opportunity to point out another potential threat to America- infectious disease- that could proliferate if the United States doesn't shore up the border with Mexico.

The statement from the Sheriff's Office states that the gear is for the arrest of illegal immigrants.
